MCG Energy’s infrastructure and applications are always maintained to the highest security standards in the marketplace. We manage our own datacenter infrastructure and security to ensure that we meet the requirements of compliance agencies and our customers. Our rigorous auditing employs many physical security and cybersecurity methods to protect our customers’ applications and data.
The operational functionality of MCG applications and the security of the entire system landscape – including all data – are architected, engineered, and built to be highly effective and user-friendly as a hosted solution in MCG Energy’s NIST SP 800-53 r4 compliant Private Cloud. Our security controls and SOC and NIST auditing programs cover datacenter infrastructure and applications. Now MCG Energy is adding FedRAMP authorization to our security and compliance programs. This will make MCG Energy unique in having both our datacenter hosting facilities and our software packages FedRAMP authorized.
Many other providers will offer to put an application into the FedRAMP cloud facility of a hosting service like AWS or Azure. This is not enough as client agencies increasingly require the same level of FedRAMP security for the application itself. While competitors shift the responsibility for security to an external hosting provider, MCG Energy’s audit and authorization programs include our datacenters as well as our applications. Unlike other providers, there are no gaps or confusion when it comes to the security of our solutions.
